Crystal motional parameters

Craig writes:

Ever tried searching through your datasheets for the motional parameters of that quartz crystal you just bought? Good luck! Vendors simply don’t specify these parameters to general end users, and for most applications that’s OK. But for high Q oscillator and filter design, measuring and matching crystals can be important.
This video discusses crystal motional parameters, how to measure them with a crystal impedance meter, and finally examines the measured values of 150+ real world crystals.
